What’s On Award-winning restaurant Ninive opens in Riyadh Oasis

Get ready to be whisked away to the magical land of Arabian nights…

Riyadh Oasis has just welcomed a new dining sensation, Ninive, offering a menu that celebrates the diversity of Arabic cuisine.

For those who didn’t know, Ninive is a big deal amongst the What’s On team in Dubai. It’s regarded as one of the best Middle Eastern restaurants in the emirate and even won Best Middle Eastern restaurant at the What’s On Awards 2021 Dubai this year.

If you’ve dined at Ninive in Dubai before, you’ll be familiar with its leisurely yet luxe concept. But here’s what you should know about Ninive before heading to Riyadh Oasis.

Ninive takes its name from one of the world’s seven wonders, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Designed as a contemporary urban majlis, Ninive’s stunning décor pays homage to the Middle East and North Africa’s rich heritage and craftsmanship.

The restaurant incorporates the aesthetics of a Bedouin tent and serves up its dishes on handcrafted pottery especially designed to fit in with the Middle Eastern ambience.

What we’re looking forward to, though, is its impressive menu. At Riyadh Oasis, you can expect chef specialities from across the region, including traditional Oriental cuisine, bursting with colour and fresh flavours served alongside various beverages.

For a delightful evening under the stars in a relaxed yet luxurious setting, Ninive should be on your must-visit restaurant at Riyadh Oasis. Perfect for a laid-back dinner with friends, indulge in creative dishes while listening to groovy funk mixes.

Ninive is the 4th restaurant to join Riyadh’s glitzy, upscale desert retreat, Riyadh Oasis. The other international restaurants include Latin-American restaurant Amazonico, masquerading as a piece of the rainforest in stark contrast to the surrounding desert; white and blue Nammos, the younger but equally fabulous sibling of the original seafood restaurant in sunny Mykonos; and Zuma, the exotic Japanese fusion cuisine restaurant.

So, are you ready to escape the capital city’s hustle and cool down the evenings with a moreish dinner with us? Book your tickets for Ninive using The Chefz app.
